Law and Order – Smoking near powder magazines

Accreditation the Redcar & Saltburn News 08/10/1874


            At the Guisborough Police Court, on Tuesday (06/10), Adml Chaloner drew the attention of the Bench to the danger arising from persons sitting down and smoking near powder magazines. At Redcar, when Artillery practice was going on, the habit was fairly frequent, and the fact of their sometimes being as much as 5,000lbs. Of powder stored in the magazine at that place would show that a flying spark might cause much mystery in the neighbourhood. He suggested that a caution board should be put up, which was at once agreed to.
